Every now and again, while I'm doing my cyber rounds, I stumble upon a name I have yet to be acquainted with... and more often than not, can't help but wonder how said find has escaped my attention for so long. 

Such was the case with Studio Nicholson. Not that I was even aware of it, but Nick Wakeman has been creating understated, borrowed-from-the-boy separates in lux fabrics since 2010 - and given my penchant for all things decidely nonchalant,  her label is right up my street. 

The clothes wear her story on their sleeve. Wakeman used to be a menswear designer for M&S, which means she understands commercial better than anyone, however quality is key. Her obsession with textures and fabrics has elevated the brand above what we have come to expect from the high street, though the end result is just as wearable - if not more so: unlike fast-fashion offspring, her pieces are designed to be worn season after season, standing the test of time and trends. 

Her impeccable fall story is no exception. Cocoon shapes, boyish pants and easy ensembles for everyday use in what would be a restricted palette were it not for a chic pop of rose. Had previous photographic evidence not paved the way, you may not have believed the colour-blind dresser that I am when I tell you the pink is what had me at hello. What with this, and those neoprene shorts, Fall is shaping up to be pretty damn cute.
